Emily’s Photo Shoot

Ohio mom, Emily Mueller broke the internet in August 2017 after a photo of her posing with 20,000 bees covering her stomach stunned many.

The mother-of three has now revealed that she lost the baby in a very touching Facebook post.

Emily who had been anticipating the birth of their child with her husband, Ryan, said in her post, “Yesterday evening we had to hand over our precious child and say goodbye to his physical body forever. Our baby has died. Our baby will never come home with us,” she continued. “This wonderful rainbow baby we were blessed with has now become a storm in our lives. Finding out your baby died is unfathomable. Learning you have to be induced and deliver your deceased child is way beyond that. My heart instantly ached for any woman that has told me she had a stillborn.”

The heartbroken mum said she had been preparing for an event and so did not notice her son’s lack of movement. “By evening I began to realize I had not felt baby move much and had contractions that felt different than any I have had before,” she wrote. “I just told myself he was sleeping but as the time passed, I felt uneasy about it.”

Emily, a beekeeper and owner of Mueller Honey Bee and Rescue, first got into beekeeping as a way to cope after suffering several miscarriages.

“Bees represent the beginning of new life and after my second miscarriage, I needed a new release,” she told PEOPLE in September. “I connected with the bees and it helped take my mind off of other hardships that were surrounding me at the time, some people do yoga… I do bees.”

Although some have said the child’s death might have been from the stings Emily might have suffered during her pregnancy, Mueller says she believes her baby died from a blood clotting issue that has caused other family members to suffer miscarriages.
